Q10021101 - The ARC-1880ix-24 doesn’t work on an Intel S3000AHV PCIe 1.0a x8 bus. The controller showed its BIOS during boot, windows couldn't find it. It was also weird that pressing TAB/F6 during the raid BIOS had no effect.
Q10091307 - The HP Compaq Elite 8300 MBIOS=K01 v02.05 hangs when attempting to access ARC-1214-4I RAID controller BIOS configuration via TAB or F6.
Q10010408 - What is the default user name and password when I have plugged in ARC-1120 controller in my system?
Q10010410 - What do we have to take care of during a firmware update? Are there any changes on the configuration? Do we have to reconfigure something?
Q10010501- Areca has a feature that automatically takes a newly inserted drive and starts the RAID rebuild automatically. Can I disable that feature? I don’t want the RAID to start rebuilding when the drive is inserted. I want to control when it starts.
Q10010603 - Will Areca ARC1220 DMA transfer data to odd memory addresses (addresses that are not word aligned)? As you know, standard SATA controllers will only do DAM transfers to even (word aligned) memory addresses. I need a controller that will support non-aligned transfers.
Q10010605 - I installed the OS on the RAID5 array with 4 disks and it works. Then after an hour the controller began to beep. I shut down the computer and then started it again. In the BIOS menu of the ARC controller it shows now: 3 disks in the "degraded" RAID5 array (instead of 4) and one free disk (the one with the failure, I think this one shortly got too hot).How can I now reintegrate this disk into the RAID5? Data should still be OK.
Q10010606 - A Dell Dimension system locks-up when booting after we install an Areca card.
Q10010706 - The ARC-1220 is working fine in another motherboard, but when I install this card in Intel S3000AHLX motherboard the motherboard not boot up. Obviously, the Intel motherboard works fine with other PCIe RAID adapters, in the same PCIe X16 slot. I try with various firmware in card and motherboard and the system didn't boot up. Do you know what's happening?
Q10010811- Can you please specify the SATA RAID controller firmware change release notes for the firmware version 1.45 to 1.46?
